Northwest Native Chamber

NWNC provides no-cost culturally specific technical assistance to communities within the bounds of what is now known as Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.


The Northwest Native Chamber (NWNC) came into being to fulfill the needs of Native entrepreneurs, providing a place to network and meet other Native business owners, and to provide resources for business growth. That ethos grew and adapted throughout the last 30 years into one of the most effective Native American Chambers in the United States.

Through a variety of programming we are able to provide no-cost wrap-around technical assistance services to businesses at nearly every stage of their business growth. Through the pillars of relationship building, education and growth, and economic justice and transformation the chamber has grown beyond the borders of Oregon into Washington and Idaho.

NWNC serves all members of the community with culturally specific services that are designed by and for Native entrepreneurs. Our purpose is to re-create an economy where all members of the community can flourish beyond the economic and social disadvantages that have impeded all communities of color in the United States.

Services available to all residents of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.
